Baldwin campaigns at UW-La Crosse

La Crosse, Wis. (WXOW) – Senator Tammy Baldwin made the trek straight to La Crosse after joining the former vice president for a campaign event in Madison Tuesday.

Baldwin met with UW-La Crosse’s College Democrats, encouraging early voting and increased canvassing over the next week. She said increasing election participation among young voters is crucial because they will be affected by policies decided in elections for the rest of their lives.

“If you think young people don’t vote, it’s going to be a self fulfilling prophecy,” Baldwin said. “Because it means probably politicians aren’t going to show up and meet face to face and do Q and A and hang out and hear what is on the minds of our students.”

A study through the Washington Post found that social issues were most likely to draw millennials to the polls over education or health care.

Baldwin will make six campaign stops each day leading up to the election next week.
